Good Luck, Good Wife: 13 TV Shows That Survived Killing off Major Characters

Originally posted 03/24/2014 12:00PM

Killing off a main character in a television show is a risky move: You're upending the show's world (and putting a coworker out of a job) in the hope that the shake-up will lead to something greater down the line. And guess what? Despite the ministrations of fans, who claim that they will never watch their favorite show without [insert character name here], it often works!

Below, 13 shows that did the same thing The Good Wife did Sunday night, and not only survived, but thrived.

Originally posted 02/27/2013 01:45PM

Two familiar stars will join the casts of American Horror Story and Boardwalk Empire for the shows' new seasons.

Kathy Bates, who won an Oscar for her frightening role as Annie in the horror film Misery, will join season 3 of FX's American Horror Story alongside fellow Oscar-winner Jessica Lange, EW reports.

Bates, 64, won an Emmy Award in 2012 for her guest turn on Two and a Half Men. She also appeared on Harry's Law and The Office. Bates announced last September that she had undergone a double-mastectomy for breast cancer after surviving ovarian cancer nine years earlier.

Ashlee Simpson & Vincent Piazza Split: Report

Originally posted 11/27/2012 11:00AM

Has the Simpson family suffered another split?

The New York Post's Page Six reports that after a year and a half of dating, Ashlee Simpson and Vincent Piazza have called it quits.

"Vincent has been working a lot, so he hasn't been able to spend as much time with Ashlee, which has caused some problems," a source tells the newspaper. "It was a mutual agreement to split, but things have been bumpy for a little while, so perhaps they might reconcile."

Ashlee Simpson and Vincent Piazza's Dinner Date Nights

Although they enjoyed Sunday's feast at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Vincent Piazza is just as satisfied by quesadillas at home with Ashlee Simpson.

"We've been cooking a lot. We have dinner nights and we hang out," the Boardwalk Empire star, 35, tells PEOPLE.

"Just by birthright, I love pastas, so I cook a lot of that – lasagnas and meatballs. But she's into this whole Tex-Mex thing, which I've been catching on to. Guacamole and sour cream, quesadillas and tacos – we're experimenting."

Emmy Nominations: Which Drama Series Deserves an Award?

Originally posted 09/16/2011 02:30PM

The Emmy Awards are almost here, and now it's time to tell us which show deserves to win outstanding drama series.

The nominees are a varied bunch:

There's fan-favorite football drama Friday Night Lights, which follows the stories unfolding inside a small Texas community; and last year's winner, the '60s advertising saga Mad Men, which stars January Jones as sullen housewife Betty Draper.

Then there's Dexter, the story of America's favorite serial killer; Boardwalk Empire about the life of Nucky Thompson, politician and gangster in Prohibition-era Atlantic City.

The Good Wife, which stars outstanding actress nominee Julianna Margulies, follows one woman's career and love life in the wake of her politician husband's high-profile sex scandal.

And Game of Thrones, HBO's well-received fantasy drama based on the best-selling book series A Song of Fire and Ice, features a cast of feuding characters, including exiled princess Daenerys Targaryen played by Emilia Clarke.

It's going to be a tough race when the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards air live from Los Angeles's Nokia Theatre on Fox Sept. 18.
